 Sacred Dialogues

with Diana Friedell and Story Ducey

Join the Conversation --- with Spirit!

Telepathy is our soul’s most natural way of communicating. Mediumship engages in a living Communion with Spirit.

In this first ZOOM class of our Mediumship Summer School, Diana Friedell and Story Ducey, ISD Co-Directors will discuss telepathy, and the nature of a psychic reading vs. a medium reading with examples and techniques. Practice receiving and giving messages from Spirit.

Additional points covered in this class. . .


  • Everything you wanted to know about Mediumship and Psychic messaging but were afraid to ask.
  • Is Spiritual communication possible?
  • Techniques for Opening the Door, staying in the light
  • Learn to enter what our ancestors called ‘the Holy of Holies’
  • How to tell when Spirit is present
  • Learn how to gather evidence of who is communicating
  • Being a Receptacle for evidence
  • Receive messages/signs from Sprit


We are all mediums and messengers from Spirit --- our spirit, our consciousness, uses the body as a medium or vehicle to manifest in the material plane.  We are all telepathic by nature, the psychic senses are the senses of the soul.

We are wired for telepathic communication.


“We Believe in Communion with all planes of existence. And that meaningful communication flows from this connection.”

Register for any or all classes that call to you.

This is is a survey course of mediumship, introducing you to a variety of techniques and teachers who will be offering full courses in the Fall, and Winter semesters.

ISD offers both continuing education and professional studies in the Intuitive Arts.

Some students study mediumship because they are grieving and seek evidence of life after life for their loved ones --- or they have experienced spiritual contact from their loved ones and want to learn more.

Other students, having learned communication can be ongoing, study mediumship in order to become spiritual grief counselors themselves.

Some relationships can be healed. 
Some relationships can be carefully laid aside. Some relationships become ongoing, growing as souls move through death’s transition back to spirit together.

Some students want to master communication with pets, others seek to practice receiving communication with multiple ancestors, still other students seek evidence of communicationwith teachers on the ‘other side.’

The first class will begin with a faculty and student panel discussions.

We will also focus each week on different Principles from The Institute for Spiritual Development
